It's been a while....

Life has of course been busy! Work consumes so much of my time that at the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is get on a computer and type about my day. But, here I am on a Sunday night, reflecting a little over the past year. A year ago this weekend, I was celebrating my last "single girl" weekend with my best girlfriends. It's hard to believe that a year has passed already! Our first wedding anniversary is one week from today. Again, I cannot believe that it's already been a year. I have to say, I am definitely the luckiest girl in the world. I have such a wonderful husband that has stood by my side, not just for the past year, but for nearly 8 years, through thick and thin. We have been incredibly blessed, and while I know that deep in my soul, I think there are still moments when I look at others and long for more.

I don't know what it is. We have a wonderful house (but I sure would love a dishwasher). We are surrounded by our family and friends (though I could do with a little less drama). We both have great jobs (but they definitely impede on quality time for the two of us). I am trying to move past these "buts" and to really learn to be happy with what we have and where we are. We have made a nice life for ourselves. I don't know what it is about me that sometimes, I struggle to see all the good without a little complaining. So all that being said, my new goal is to live in the moment, appreciate all of the good things in life, and learn to be content. It may take time, but it will come.
